(AMFT) and (APCC)

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT) and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC). My passion is researching and developing Neurodivergent Queer Affirming therapy models which uplift neurodiversity, disability empowerment, and mental health. Historical perspectives and divergent grassroots narratives are the context for my practice, honoring the complex, intersectional histories of disabled and neurodivergent life.

I practice somatic, humanistic, emotionally focused, and acceptance and commitment therapeutic modalities. I am devoted to utilizing clinical privilege to address the human experience from a non-clinical lens. I identify as a white, neurodivergent, autistic, femme queer from the south who values and prioritizes communal interdependence, abolition, and liberation.
